Subject: First Show
I, of course, remember this fondly. Not the best show I ever saw, but at the time what did I know. One thing I'll note is that the first set seems a little fast. Now, I'm sure their playing was fast as it often was in this era, but the pitch is off. I can't imagine they weren't at concert pitch in the first set, but were in the second.

Very nice. A sweet remaster by Charlie too. I haven't heard much of '83 other than the handful of shows I attended but if this is an example I'll be back for more.

I don't like to give out five stars willy nilly. This one gets all five. Great sound, great performance. Set list looks like a strange hodge podge, but it works. The boys played really hard and fast - uptempo versions of some old tunes. "Touch" maybe a bit too fast. A lot of energy and fast jams. Stephen Stills adds some more spice towards the end. I am very glad that I stumbled upon this show!

Subject: Black Queen
Sound Quality 4.5 ; Show Quality 5.0...rounded up to 5.0. One of only 2 times Black Queen was played by the Dead. Nice energy on this night.

Subject: Was a great show
This was by far the best Dead show I had ever been to and I like many have been to alot. Power house rockin tunes from the get go! First time I heard them do truckin live!!Stephen Stills was an added bonus when he came out for Iko Iko. The next night was a complete opposite. Was like 2 hours of Black Peter. It sounded like they were as hungover as I was.. Stills did "If" you can't be with the one you love" the second night and that was cool.
